  • Top 10 Walks: Snowdonia: Ridge Walks and Scrambles
    The ten routes outlined in this attractive pocket size book are amongst the very best challenging routes on the mountains of Snowdonia. Snowdonia's mountain ridges can be every bit as dramatic as the summits they connect. Some are well known classics like the Snowdon Horseshoe or Nantlle Ridge, while others are surprisingly well kept secrets like the Llech Du Spur, Gyrn Lâs Ridge or the ridges of the northern Glyderau. Created as a companion volume to the best selling 'Top 10 Mountain Walks', these little books will show you the very best that Snowdonia has to offer.
  • The Lakeland Fells have some of the finest ridge walks in the country. Exploring these ridges offers fell walking at its most satisfying — staying high, taking in several summits and enjoying the spectacular settings. Many of the Lake District’s ridge walks have become classics, like the grassy edges of the Fairfield and Kentmere Horseshoes, or rocky aretes of Striding Edge and Swirral Edge and the aptly named Sharp Edge of Blencathra.
  • Mountain and Hill Walking in Snowdonia is a two volume in-depth guide to every summit of note in the Snowdonia National Park. Each recommended route is described in detail and accompanied by a full colour relief map. All the routes are circular and include information on parking, distance and height gained. Volume 1 covers the northern half of the National Park.
